Service Could Launch In Late 2022
Apple is working on selling iPhones and iPads themselves as part of a hardware subscription service like Netflix.

On the hardware front: Apple added a monthly subscription model for its AppleCare extended warranties back in 2019.

Be the price of the device divided by 12 or 24 months, potentially with the option to upgrade to new hardware as its released.
It’s Hard To Imagine Apple
Simply be lending devices on a monthly basis, will you really be able to just pay to “subscribe” an iPhone for a single month?
World Where Apple Customers Invest
Months of capital to rent a device only to have them return it at the end of the process seems equally unlikely.
Leasing Is An Easier Upgrade
Fans can upgrade to newest model without swallowing the high lump-sum prices like $699 iPhone 13 $1k Pro Max.
